Display software versions ??
 
I am having issues updating software. The ./confiure, make, make install cycle seems to run without obvious errors but the follow-on package starts whining about required versions.

I bascially am looking for a command that would list all of the packages installed and drop it into a text file. Such as:
gtk+-2.14.0
glib-2.3.15
libusb-1.1.x

etceteras so I can tell exactly what is installed and running.

Thanks, Bob

What distribution are you using and what package manager are you using?

If you are using rpm's, try this as a root:
>rpm -qa

Jailbait: DUH! I am using Fedora Core 6 with the standard package manager.

Steve: Thanks the 'rpm -qa' command worked great after I piped it to a file.

Thanks, Bob
